This weblink to The Huffington Post will take you to ten of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most important quotes. In light of former President Eisenhower’s warning about the military-industrial complex in our previous post, and the on-going cuts proposed to social programs by radical conservatives, the quote below seems particularly poignant:

Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?, 1967.
